Going on Vacation? Please Read This........Top
It is simply not possible for us to put together weeks of packets for your child on a moment's notice.
If you know that you will be going on an extended vacation and will be taking Kumon along, please call us in advance. The more notice we have, the better able we will be to plan for your child.
If you leave a voice message or an e-mail by noon of your last class day, we will have the work ready for your child at that class.
If we do not receive advance notice, we will have the vacation packets ready for you to pick up by the end of class that day. Please return in the last 15 minutes of class to pick up your packets.
Please help us to do our best planning and preparation for your child's Kumon. A call, an e-mail or filling out the Vacation Schedule form that is available in the office are all we need.
Thanks! And have a great vacation!
"Taking a Break"Top
When a student who has taken a break returns to KUMON, they will not pick up where they left off in the curriculum. Over time, the skills that students have built through daily study have weakened. Thus, when a student returns to KUMON after an extended absence, the Instructor will determine a previous point of study for them to begin again at, usually at least a half-level before where they left off.
The monthly tuition is due in advance. For example, December's monthly tuition is due before the end of November. We highly encourage payment by EFT (electronic funds transfer). This is a very simple, secure, automatic and inexpensive payment option. We also offer VISA and MasterCard, check and cash payment options. Complete information about our tuition options and rates are available in our enrollment contract, which parents receive when they attend an orientation.
Our KUMON families have generally be great about getting tuition payments in on time, and so we don't often have to talk about the late payment policy. FYI, the policy is:
Everyone has a crazy day from time to time where the schedule goes out the window. This happens to KUMON students, too. However, we are very strict about homework completion. We expect our students to come to class with all of their KUMON homework 100% complete, along with all mistakes corrected. Students who come to class with work that is incomplete must complete all of it at the Center before beginning the classwork for the day, as well as make all corrections.
If there are extenuating circumstances that have prevented your child from completing their work at home, please be sure to send in a note or give a call alertiing us in advance that the homework has not been done. We will reschedule their work for them.
The active supervision of daily assignments at home is linked to each child's success in the KUMON program.
It is crucial that parents provide a 10-15 minute block of time per subject for the completion and correction of daily KUMON assignments.
It is the job of the parents to insure that assignments are timed, that errors are marked, and that mistakes are corrected by the student before beginning new work.
All parents are expected to homegrade their child's KUMON homework. Students whose parents' homegrade make faster, smoother progress through the KUMON program because:
A basic tenet of the KUMON Method is that students learn from their mistakes. KUMON students are required to correct every mistake on every set they complete. Students whose parents do not homegrade spend a great deal of time in class correcting mistakes from old homework before they can begin the days' classwork. This often leads to an extended stay at the center. Students are also required to correct all mistakes on their daily classwork, as well.
We provide Answer Books and a handy Parents Guide to Homegrading to help you
get started if you are not already homegrading. A detailed instruction on home grading is available at our Home Grading Workshop
What If I Miss a Class?Top
Everyone misses a class sooner or later. We either forget, or traffic is bad, or a practice ran late.
If you know that your child will not be able to make it to class, please call us so that we can arrange for you to pick up their classwork and homework during class. With advance notice, we can put their work down in the kiosk at the bottom of the stairs for you to pick up at your convenience.
If a student misses a regularly-scheduled class without contacting us in advance, the work for that class is forfeited and will be reassigned for the next class. Work missed due to an unexcused absense cannot be "made up".
Completed and corrected assignments are used to develop and modify each student's individualized lesson plan. For this reason, new assignments will not be given after the 2nd subsequent unexcused absence until the previously assigned work is returned.
Please be sure to notify us at least one class session in advance of any extended vacation in order to give us ample time to plan and organize for your child's absence. Thanks!
If a student is going to drop out of a class, either temporarily or indefinitely for some reason, a written notice is required at least a calendar month before the effective date. Failure to receive such notice will result in continued charges to your account. Your account will remain open and active until written notice is received. Your account will be closed one month after we receive your notice to terminate.
Tuition is pro-rated for the first month only according to the day of the month enrolled. Full tuition is charged for all subsequent months until one month advance written notice is given to terminate enrollment.
Paid tuition is non-refundable and is forfeited should a student discontinue enrollment. In cases of medical or other emergencies where a one month advance notice is impossible to give, please call us and we will do what we can to accommodate your situation.
For your convenience, here is the form you can download , fill out and return to the center to serve as one-month written advance notice.
